At the intersection of Webster Street and Seventh Avenue sits the Mont Pleasant Boys & Girls Club. Directly across the street from Hamilton Elementary School, the MP Club opens as soon as the dismissal bell rings.
The club, originally a church, was renovated in the summer of 2013 to accommodate the growing needs of its members. This clubhouse features a gym, computer room, gameroom, bathrooms and kitchen, along with a brand-new Teen Center (which has it’s own computer lab, gameroom, and recording studio).
Each day approximately 90 members ranging in age from 6 to 18 attend the MP Club. The dedicated MP staff works tirelessly to provide members with a safe place to learn & grow, administer life-enhancing programming, and create on-going relationships with caring adults.
